The beauty hair tool industry is vast and filled with all kinds of tools, gadgets, and items meant to make your life easier and help you achieve the hair of your dreams. With that said, it can be a bit overwhelming to sift through the options and find what it is you really need, and what you won’t be able to live without.
That’s exactly why we’ve put together this list of the top four must-have beauty tools for your hair so you know where to spend your money.
There’s no doubt about it – when it comes to the most used beauty tool for your hair, the hairdryer tops the list. This is a key first step in the styling process for all kinds of different looks. Today, you can find a wide array of options, including lightweight models, ones that use ionic technology to impart shine into your hair, and those with hot/warm/and cool settings.
Should the model you pick have a cool setting, this is meant to be used after you finish blow drying your hair. At this point, you give it a “cool shot” to set and lock in your style.
A round brush goes together with a good quality hairdryer. If it’s volume, shine, and lustre you’re after then you absolutely need a round brush. It is meant to be used when drying your hair, working in small sections at a time. There are a variety of sizes available, which will change up the finished look.
A ceramic round brush is the best option to use with your hair dryer as it will heat up and act like a curling iron or flat iron of sorts. The boar bristle model is perfect for achieving shiny smooth hair.
If it’s straight luxurious looking hair you’re after, then you need a high-quality flat iron such as the Style Pro Flat Iron Vibrastrait Pro. This particular model features vibrating flat plates that help to distribute the heat more evenly and detangle the hair as it passes through. It speeds up the straightening process by up to 50%.
When shopping for a flat iron, you will find there are various sizes, types of plates used, and features. Ceramic plates are one of the best options out there, so look for a model that allows you to adjust the temperature.
One of the hottest trends right now is loose natural looking waves and curls, which can be achieved with a curling wand. These are similar to a curling iron in that they curl your hair, but the wand itself is tapered and doesn’t have a clamp on it. The overall effect is much more natural looking. The wands come in various sizes, which will affect the finished look.
Keep in mind there is a bit of a learning curve in using this tool, so you may want to pick up one of the heat-protective gloves so you don’t accidentally burn yourself.
By picking up on each of these tools you’ll have everything you need to create stunning hairstyle looks.
